The Dirty Dozen: Who Are the True FJ Gurus?

As a newcomer to this forum, I've been impressed by how helpful and smart many of the participants are. The collective brainpower and experience here is staggering, and my own mods reflect it.

I'm starting this string to give everyone a chance to name their top FJ guru--somebody whose ingenuity, experience, and kindness has deeply benefited them or their vehicle. View it as an opportunity to give thanks and further spread the creed about a particular mod.

Who are the dirty dozen and why?

Nestah Edition.

If electrical current runs through it, he is the king.

Inventive circuits and mods, sano work, nicest guy.

What size tires will fit on my FJ?

The owner's manual for your FJ is right here. <--- This is a link. Many answers to your questions are contained within.

See the relationship between highway speed and MPG here.

lzalusky has my vote.
I think he designed and put together the 10+ washer relocate kit, and is now working on a 2nd battery mount with Emision pump relocate kit, amongst other things.

Example.
ejcagle, ethanexplosion and Eskoe like this.

Makes me think of ShadowWarrior patiently answering my noob PMs in early 2010.

Re: The Dirty Dozen: Who Are the True FJ Gurus?

This forum is loaded with guru’s: Helmut_S; Bazross; Lqdchkn; Old Cruiser; Wikid; Trouble dog; FJamming; Dumpingthegutter; Chitown4X4, FJess, and Chris Delancy(Chinese character for avatar?); Layonn; FJ &TJ Dude; Vegas_Nick…the list goes on.

The unsung heroes are all the contributing members in the “Member builds” thread and the “How to” threads…

Nestah stands out in this field however. His website dedicated to the FJ proves his metal

I'll echo these guys and @Delancy (I can't write Kanji so he's still Delancy ) and @Woodsman , as I'm sure I've hit them up for info over the years.

Honestly even those I havent contacted directly have helped in some fashion or another. Just browsing the forums continually gives me ideas
